Kaizer Chiefs legend Patrick Mayo and dad to Cape Town City’s in-form striker, Khanyisa Mayo, has addressed the links and speculation regarding his talented son.

Exclusively speaking to The South African, Patrick Mayo said he is delighted to see Khanyisa doing well for Cape Town City in his debut top-flight campaign.

After netting 12 goals in the DStv Premiership so far and needing one to bag the top goalscorer accolade, Mayo shares his ambitions for the left-footed player in the midst of links with Chiefs.


Known for being a versatile player for Chiefs back in his heyday, Mayo played as a defender and as a hitman for the Soweto giants.

He exclusively revealed why he wants his son, Khanyisa to go overseas and snub the likes of Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns, explaining that because his son is still young, money is not everything.

“Honestly, I wish he can go overseas and test himself there because I played in South Africa and I would like him to go abroad,” Mayo told The South African.

“That is where I could not go and I know he is positive and when he believes, things can go according to his wishes. It’s also his ambition to go overseas.

“He doesn’t like to play for Sundowns and there’s this thing that people think it’s only Sundowns that pays well. No, a club like Stellenbosch FC can also pay well.

“I can be honest with you, the talk about Chiefs is just rumours because nobody has come forward with an offer. I can’t stop him from joining Chiefs but he must not commit the same mistakes I made as a professional player.

“I usually tell him that sometimes money is not everything but because he is still young, game time is what he must look to enjoy.

“Because of his age, he may not be able to fight and push himself when he doesn’t play regularly at a club like Chiefs. He will end up being demoralised. So, my wish is to see him go to a club where he will always play and enjoy his football.

“He’s in his first season at City and he is playing regular football which is good for his development.”


Turning the focus to Khanyisa’s fine form in front of goals, the former Mthatha Bucks and SuperSport United player couldn’t express his delight as the Citizens star is making headlines.

As coach Eric Tinkler’s Citizens are heading to the FNB Stadium to face Chiefs in their final match of the season this weekend, Mayo needs only one goal to dethrone Mamsandawana’s Peter Shalulile.

“I don’t know how to express how I feel. I am proud but I just believe he must be arrogant, selfish, and hungry when they play Chiefs,” added the proud dad.

“I know he only needs one goal and I think winning the top goalscorer award will boost his confidence. However, I told Khanyisa that he must forget about Shalulile.

“He must just go and play his normal game against Chiefs. He usually plays well against Chiefs and I believe he will do well this time.

“Being selfish doesn’t mean he must not pass a teammate when there’s a chance because he will get his opportunity – he must not be under pressure.

“Khanyisa has done well for City and he has scored vital goals to help them finish in the top five or eight. If he scoops the award, that will send a message to Hugo Broos because it’s been a while having a local top scorer.

“Winning the award means Broos will not have excuses to overlook a South African striker when selecting his squad.”
